Dogs Off-Leash, On-Screen

Sometimes, in the arms of waifish models, tiny dogs get to appear at
fashion shows — as accessories. Tonight, however, dogs will own
the runway at Penn Valley Off-Leash Dog Park (29th Street and
Wyandotte). A style show centered on dogs is part of the Welcome to
Hollywoof
activities presented by Kansas City, Missouri, Parks and
Recreation. The evening kicks off at 7 p.m. with an hour of playtime.
The fashion show, a doggy talent contest and games start at 8. The main
event is an 8:30 screening of film The Truth About Cats and
Dogs
. The first 50 pooches at the gate get free gift
bags.
